Anna has many commissions from film and theatre companies and has also participated in many group exhibitions. See Anna's work on Instagram @elysiancreations @jewellerymakingclasses
Her design interests have extended from costume to other areas including lead lighting, mosaic, sculpture, printing and fine art techniques, millinery, and metal and theatrical costumes. She also works as a freelance stylist for bridal and fashion photo shoots.
During the last twenty years of running her costume jewellery label 'Elysian Creations' she has trained many staff how to craft and assemble costume jewellery, bridal millinery and costumes, and extended this ten years ago to teaching children and adults how to make jewellery and art and craft creations.
After many years of working in the fashion industry and becoming a mother of two, Anna's passion for teaching and sharing her extensive knowledge in jewellery making and art and craft techniques has grown from teaching at schools to running classes and workshops at her own studio in Melbourne’s inner west.
She believes everyone has the ability to be creative and with positive encouragement can produce beautiful artwork. She also believes creativity has a calming effect on children and builds confidence through a sense of achievement, she loves inspiring children to push the boundaries of what they think they are capable of to send them to next level.
